i have a v-ampire. in my own opinion its great but i havent played many other modelling amps. its amazing value for money though so it would probably be the best if you are on a budget.

id recomend a line 6 spider, or a cube over the vamp, though IMO i think LINE 6 is the leading company in modeling amps,

Behringer makes good replications of other people's stuff... that's borderline unreliable.

Their pedals are right up there with boss pedals, but they come with plastic casings, instead of metal... for example...

I've never had a problem with behringer amps, but i've never used one with digital effects either...

IMO behringer is better than line 6. Today i compared my Behringer GMX212 w/ my dads line 6 spider 2 and the Behringer had WAY better tone especially for cleans. If you want all out balls in face distortion then go w/ the line 6 cuz it has the insane setting which sounds like bees on acid but the behringer does have better tone. If u want i can upload some sound clips of both and let you compare but i suggest you try both of em out.

Yeah the V stuff is better then the Line6 but honestly id steer clear... Unless you're looking for recording options like the V-amp Pro which is great and a cheaper alternate to a POD
#8
The V-amp pro is not bad at all coupled with a good tube power amp. And the fact that you can plug your headphones in and jam all night is pretty cool to..I suppose the V-ampire is not quite as good but still you should be able to get some pretty good sounds out of it..

imo, the main problem with behringer amps is their reliability, not their tone.

ive got some other behringer products and they are fine for the price.

meh, i said line 6 spiders are a lot better than behringer vamps. I didnt say spiders were top of the line modelling amps, i said LINE 6 was leading the modelling amp market...ever tried somethign other than a spider? anyway, i put more trust into a company that thrives on their digital technology, over a cheap unreliable brand. Line 6 must be doing something right?

Well are all Behringer products that unreliable? How about the V-tone GMX 212? and how bad is the quality anyway, I tend to take care of my stuff very well, and the behringer do seem to be the best bang for your buck.

i like thier mixers and preamps, but like i said. their amps dont have the best record.

we get alot of "problem" threads for behringer. also they used to have fire issues on some of the older models.
google behringer and catching fire. something like that.

I'd wait till after the frankfurt show if your after a moddler. Lets just say, Vox could well be bringing out a new moddler. They are stopping the Blue front (the flagship ADVT's) but the Chrome fronts will still be for sale. That gives a large hint that they will be brining out something new and very special.


Back ontopic. Anyone got soundclips of the V-amp pro? looks like a great thing to start getting into Racks and that kinda thing.

Ive had the GMX212 and had NO problems with it AT ALL. I move it about 3 times week (practice and church) and ive never had any problems with it.
